"Boston's Salem Wolves dropped the new EP, Black Books, where Howlin' Jack, Isaac, and Woodrue howl out the hounds of heck on, "I Saw Hell", to the rumbling rough and ready, "Rumblr", unleashing the occultic underground observances, "There Be Wytches", to the doom destroying title cut finale. Salem Wolves are here to summon out your inner ache for rugged, and damned riffs that ride out into a thousand sunsets." -Impose Magazine
"That rumbling heard off in the distance is Salem Wolves. The north-of-Boston rock trio, based exactly where their name suggests, dropped their debut EP, Black Books, back in January, and it's a garage-pop and surf-rock mixer that puts a fresh spin on tested sounds... a gritty, hip-shaking number that tumbles along to the imagined sights of a bonfire beach party" - Vanyaland
"Salem Wolves bring a mix of garage-y noise, distorted witchy psych sounds, and pop sensibilities to life on Black Books. The more I hear it, the catchier it gets.... Trashy garage pop at its demented best." -Angelle Wood, WZLX Watch List
"Quite brilliant all-out garage rock... confident swagger" - Route for the Underdog
"Black Books, the new EP from Salem Wolves, is a solid release. It's garage rock tinged with a slightly poppier sound, but a lo-fi vibe, which gives it a Sebadoh meets garage rock sound. "I Saw Hell" is a Rocket From the Crypt style rocker with a touch of glam. "Rumblr" is the thrash rock version of "I Want Candy." Black Books comes highly recommended." - If It's Too Loud...
"A classic has to start somewhere." -WZLX
"Interesting for a couple of reasons; it's lo-fi and it's really about witches and shit like that. I don't know if these guys are crazy or think they're being funny, or actual Wiccans, or what, but I like this track." - Hearts Bleed Radio
"Raucous garage pop-rock" - MaineToday
